Four sacked members of the Welsh Conservatives cabinet did not fulfil their cabinet responsibility when they rebelled against the rest of the group in a vote, their leader Andrew RT Davies has said.
Nick Ramsay, Antoinette Sandbach, Mohammad Asghar and Janet Finch-Saunders lost their positions when they failed to vote in a Senedd motion on the devolution of income tax.
Mr Davies said a smaller cabinet would be more "nimble" and "progressive" in developing the party's plans for the future.
